Craig Bartels


The Indy Realty Shop

As a lifetime resident of Indiana, Craig Bartels has what it takes to help you with all your home buying and selling needs.    Experience, technology, and a hands on approach is what has given Craig the opportunity to assist almost 1,000 home buyers and sellers over the past years.  

Craig's life long experience in real estate has given him a strong presence in the industry.  As an investor that has bought and sold over 100 homes in his own portfolio, he puts his money where his mouth is.    Craig has worked in multiple areas of the industry, including owning a property management company in the past with over 400 single family homes under management.    With his connections to the property management industry, Craig can assist anyone with buying homes as investments or as quick fix and flips.  

Home listings is his #1 priority and specialty.    Craig's computer technology degree from Purdue University and associate degree in business has allowed him to embrace and utilize technology and the internet more effectively then other agents in the Indianapolis area.  

Craig takes pride in quick, effective communication and is able to custom tailor his approach depending on how the client wants to communicate. Whether it be via text, email, or just good old fashion phone calls.  Craig utilizes electronic signature options(for clients who prefer this over physical paper).  But the choice is up to the client.

Craig resides in the Zionsville area with his wife of almost 18 years, along with his 4 children.  His free time is spent hanging out with family, sports, and weight lifting/fitness.
